Its fitting that Delaware County would see it fit to deliver revised tax assessments to their constituents around this holiday. Since we are all wearing masks all they had to do is deliver in person with a gun. We live in a 55+ community. Our children have been out of school for 24 years. We are virtually retired but choose to continue working because we have administrative idiots running our government and things like this current revision is what can happen if you leave your guard down. Here is why all the complaining. Our taxes in Lower Southeast Delaware County has increased $3500
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY YOU BOZOS.

A Happy fourth of July. If 2021 millage would have been posted it could have been for many. Government is out of sorts today. Sending new assessments without also sending new applicable millages is alarming many. Its thoughtless government at its worst.

That's a hefty bump. I wonder how hard the rest of Delco was hit.

What percentage increase is that and what are they saying is the reason behind that large of an increase? New school? You couldn't pay me enough to move back to Delco for a number of reasons, not only taxes. That's why Chester County is booming so much, but they are bringing their idiocy there with them.

There's a correlation between Delaware County having high property taxes, but taxes are primarily driven by the school district (not the county).

Your guess is as good as mine about why school districts in Delaware County demand high taxes, but they're the ones to blame; not the county.

The politicians that have the biggest impact on your life is usually the school board.

I'm guessing the underlying script is blaming the democrats for the re-assessment / increase?

The move to reassess all started before the election in 2019, back when the GOP still controlled the DELCO counsel...

It's the first re-assessment in 20+ years.

Yet Property and Real Estate taxes have gone up way past the rate of inflation in Delco due to Millage increases, so your argument is irrelevant.
